    Dear PJ Rankin, About rain, the good thing is that the microphone is not so badly completely surrounded...but it cannot do the magic. The big rain drops will ever make noise because the impact remains quite near to the membrane. Our KELLY units have 3cm thickness, around large cages, and that is not for nothing... We may propose a waterproof treatment (like KELLY), but only to fight for water/humidity. The back part of the microphone holder is also nicely closed, but not exactly sealed ! Anyway, I'm sure many people will find some DIY solutions to help water fighting in light rains... There are no Low cut integrated in the unit. The MiniCMIT integrates a dream rumble filter by itself. For other mikes, you have to make sure of the rumble filtering, exactly like you have to do with any kind of suspension/windshield.

    Here is the situation with this new COSI swivel: - All OSIX serie units are now provided with it, but fitted with fixed screws (XLR only on side, as usual). - As a replacement part for OSIX serie, you can order the reference "SW-UL" instead of our "old" reference SW-LB. It will be fitted with fixed screws. - All E-OSIX serie units are now provided with this swivel, with both "violin" screws and rotating functions (as COSI). - PIANO, PIANISSIMO and Zephyx series still keep their original swivels. About COSI price. We did our best to limit the end price...but everyone has to appreciate two things: - Design costs are very high. All pieces (unbreakable) are totally new shapes. Moulds are numerous (and NOT made in Asia). Many many versions/prototypes has been made. - The unit is a real different tool as the usual ones. Is it a "suspension" (indoor) ? Is it a "windshield" (outdoor) ? Certainly both. Surprisingly good and ready for evolution (other external layers, other mike adaptations, etc...) Try it, and send us feedbacks !

    Dear Wrinex, all the prototype testers have been invited to talk totally freely. We also invite them to make real recordings but they were all busy on shootings. On the video, the only real sounds from COSI comes from Rado Stevanov (high shaking) and the "Hey Bro" guy in Portugal (high wind). We may produce others videos, measurments and tests in...a while (but we are very busy)...but will you trust us ? You have the choice either to wait for the "world reply" or test it yourself. Some dealers begin to get demo units from us. Where are you based ? We can make sure that a dealer around will have units soon. Let us know ! P.Chenevez

    Zaxcom Patent Discussion

    Dear Glenn, as you know, the dream invention is a desirable black box with a magic feature. Such a device doesn't need any patent at all because it's impossible to break and copy. Only speaking about the "recording transmitter" feature, this invention is exactly the opposite of the black box. This simple genius idea is...desirable for all manufacturers, as you perfectly know and as everyone is able to notice. No doubt that the only way to protect it is the patent option...with predictible troubles only solvable by lawyers. Certainly tricky and expensive. My question is more a questioning: You naturally deserve to get the highest thankfulness regarding intellectual property, for this feature and for all other devices that you designed. Not so simple, I guess, if I refer (for example) to articles of The Economist regarding the Patent Controversy, written in 1850-1875. Good luck and thank you again for all your work that helps customers in their daily work. P.Chenevez Cinela
  7. "Lavallier" microphone: the name comes from Louise Françoise de La Baume Le Blanc, duchess de La Vallière (and mistress "paramour" of king Louis XIV). La "lavallière" is a very nice kind of...tie !

    CCM41 + OSIX + HMa = hiss?

    Dear Claus, your issues are now well known. The CCM is known to be RF sensitive under certain conditions. In accordance with Schoeps (with their design) we now provide our Minix suspensions (OSIX CCM doesn't exist anymore) with an RF filter which works well with the Lectro and other TXs. If you feel to do it "at home", we can send you the choke that you'll have to solder in the XLR. Please let me know ! P.Chenevez

    New LEONARD range

    The new LEO (Leonard ball) has exactly the same dimensions than the old version. The possibility to use the 2 fabric covers and the fur of the old version was part of the specifications for the drawing of the new version, so yes you can use the cover and fur of the old model. The product references for buying the cage only (without covers and without fur) are: LEO-20WW (Schoeps CMC 20mm) LEO-22aWW (Neumann KM140/150 21.8mm) LEO-22bWW (Neumann KM184/185, KMA/D 22.1mm) LEO-25WW (Sennheiser MKH40/50 25mm) LEO-20MSWW (Schoeps MS double holes 2x20mm) (in this case the bottom cover need to be change)
  10. The new LEO range is now available ! Unbreakable material. New design. LEO-20 for Schoeps CMC LEO-20-MS for CMC + CCM8 LEO-22 for Neumann KM series LEO-25 for Sennheiser MKH40/50 more infos at: http://www.cinela.fr/catalog.php
  11. Ha ha, Glen, of course I understood that. It was à joke from me. The live performance is so nicely connected to the recording technique. Thank you for sharing this ! Philippe
  12. I saw this video yesterday, quickly. Let me remind those very nice colors and atmos. What a sound and emotion. Did you use a 24 tracks recorder ? Thank you for this work Glen. Crazy, you do not seem that old... Philippe

    Rain and wind protection

    A little information, based on our first experimentations few years ago. Looking for the lowest "sponge effect", the Kelly foam was the best material in comparison with many other ones. The only BIG risk is to apply the waterproof treatment (Nikwax) on the foam itself ! If you do that, the speedy water drops will go inside the foam cells very easily but will NOT go out !!! The Nikwax treatment is definitely made to be generously applied on the fabric under the foam. Philippe from Cinela

    MS Sennheiser MKH 30/40 windscreen?

    Dear Henrimic, David and everyone, If we succeed, the LEO may come in a new design...in a while. To be very simple: - it will not fit the MKH30+40/50 (definitely toooo big for the LEO). - there will be a version 2 x 20mm (For CMC + CCM8) - if we have enough requests, there could be a way to make a 25+19mm (MKH30+8050) !

    Why go to NAB?

    Good question from Simon ! I have at least one little answer. Unfortunately I will not be at the NAB this year, but you'll find two prizes from Cinela at the Ramps/JW party: - A full Pianissimo windshield with many accessories - E-OSIX suspension for several mikes Have a great NAB ! P. Chenevez
